GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – April 6, 2019

REVIEW


The benchmark for Global equity markets performance, the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O) continues to remain strong. The ETF had a strong rebound from support at 63 levels and since then the uptrend resumed without any significant setback. In February the ETF cleared its 200-day moving average and continues to trend above its long-term average. In the short-term horizontal resistance at 74.8 levels can act as an overhead supply. Strong support is the 200-day average at 70.3 levels.

GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – March 30, 2019

REVIEW


The benchmark for the Global equity markets performance, the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O) is trying to find direction above its long-term average. We can see choppy price action around the 200-day average. More important is how the index will consolidate around the average. If it forms an orderly, recognizable short-term consolidation (in the form of a flag, pennant, rectangle, symmetrical triangle) I will conclude that the index is preparing for a new leg up. 200-day moving average is forming support at 70.15 levels.

GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – March 16, 2019

REVIEW


The benchmark for the Global equity markets performance, the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O) found support above its 200-day (40 week) average. Sharp V-reversal from the low of January 2019 didn't encounter a pullback/correction. I analyze the price action that manages to consolidate and find support above its long-term average as positive and review the ACWI ETF with a bullish bias. During any pullback or further sideways consolidation, the 200-day moving average at 69.9 levels will act as support.

GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – March 9, 2019

REVIEW


The benchmark for the Global equity markets performance, the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O) found resistance at 71.3 levels. Strong rebound that started in the beginning of January is now being interrupted with a correction. This week's price action tested the 200-day moving average.  We are likely to see more choppy price action around the 200-day average, possibly in an attempt to form a reversal chart pattern. It is still early to call for the developing chart pattern a head and shoulders reversal. ACWI ETF is now in a trading range between 66.3 and 71.3 levels.

The benchmark for the Global equity markets performance, the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF remains above its long-term 200-day moving average. The ETF is now testing a minor resistance level at 71.3. The rebound from January lows has been strong and without any correction. A possible correction can result in a pullback to test the 200-day moving average at 69.8 levels. With the price remaining above the long-term average, the technical outlook has turned positive.

GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – February 23, 2019

REVIEW


The benchmark for the Global equity markets performance the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF is testing the resistance level at 71.3 levels. Since the beginning of the year the ETF had a strong run towards the 200-day moving average. Over the past two weeks the ETF cleared its long-term average. If there is a pullback, the 200-day moving average will act as a support around 69.7 levels. Price action above the long-term average should be considered bullish and could signal a change in trend.

GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – February 16, 2019

REVIEW


The benchmark for the Global equity markets performance, the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF had another strong week pushing the ETF above its 200-day (40-week) moving average. Back to back weekly gains followed the V-bottom reversal from the support level at 63. I think we are likely to see some sort of consolidation around the long-term average. Given the uninterrupted advance from January lows, a short-term pullback can possibly form the right shoulder of a H&S bottom formation. Please note it is still early to call for such development. I want to highlight this possibility as many other benchmarks are forming similar structures. For a good example of a consolidation around the long-term average, you can check the H&S bottom formation in 2016.

GLOBAL EQUITY MARKETS – February 9, 2019

REVIEW


The benchmark for the Global equity markets performance, the iShares MSCI All Country World Index ETF (ACWI.O), found resistance at the 200-day moving average. After a sharp rebound from the support area (63 levels), the long-term 200-day moving average was the first important resistance the ETF faced. During any consolidation around the 200-day average or during a pullback, I will be looking for a bullish continuation chart pattern development. For bullish interpretation and a reversal of the downtrend, I would like to see the ETF stabilizing above its long-term average. A good example is the first half of 2016...
